Middleware has emerged as an important architectural component in modern distributed systems. Its role is to offer users a high-level, platform-independent programming model (object-oriented or component-based) and to hide problems of distribution. Examples of key middleware platforms include CORBA, DCOM, .NET, and the Java-based series of technologies (RMI, Jini, and EJB).
